Orientation and Transition Programs (OTP) is committed to providing students and families full access to our programs.

Participation in SOAR activities often includes:

  • Listening to and viewing presentations and videos
  • Reading written materials and handouts
  • Traveling between buildings across campus
  • Dining and staying overnight on campus
  • Taking placement exams

Let us know how we can help remove any barriers you might face in attending and taking part in SOAR.

Accommodations for a disability

OTP partners with the Disability Resource Center to provide accommodations for SOAR participants with apparent and non-apparent disabilities.

Please request SOAR accommodations with OTP with as much advance notice as possible so we can best prepare for your arrival. Requests made within 10 days before your session may not be guaranteed.


Magers Health and Wellness Center offers a limited number of wheelchairs for rent for use during SOAR. Contact Magers Health and Wellness Center to rent a wheelchair.

Dietary needs

Missouri State Dining Services provides SOAR participants with meals that meet their dietary needs, including allergen-free meals. Contact Dining Services to inform them of your needs and scheduled SOAR session date.
